VIEW 2023 – Joining information

VIEW Professional Development Conference 16 and 17 March 2023

Birmingham Strathallan Hotel, BW Signature Collection, Hagley Road, Birmingham

Thank you for booking to attend the 2023 VIEW Conference

Train Strike

We are encouraged to hear that most delegates who had originally planned to travel by train have been able to make alternative arrangements such as car-sharing and taking the coach so they can still take advantage of our specialist CPD and networking event.

To make the conference run as smoothly as possible under the new circumstances the welcome desk will remain open for delegates as we appreciate that the traffic may be heavier than usual. Don’t worry if you’re late!
